In addition to the sloppy playing those 6 song first sets started to get to me. When the band's set break was longer than the first set on most nights it really wore me out. Get into the stadium to get a good seat, watch the opening act for over an hour. a hour plus break to change the stage, the Dead come on for 45 minutes and then break for an hour. I think I need an nice Eyes from 73 to put me back in my happy place.

Though obviously not for everyone, TDIH 1985 might help cleanse the palate.
Celebrating the twentieth anniversary and kicking off one of my favorite summers with the boys.
The first of only a few takes on the Clapton/Whitlock tune Keep On Growing, and Comes A Time revived after five years. Great set two.
Not sure which upload I like best – here is the soundboard:

I love me some June '85. More East Coast tour. The 'second' set rocks. Best version of KoG.
21st anniversary unless my math is going.

1985-1965
Considered a separate post on the tour, but decided just to add to lobster’s thread rather than provoke any speeding arrows.

We gotta stay on the TDIH, '85. I was listening to S/F from Merriweather the other day. Yummy.

Counting from Mother McCree's? I'm guessing, though, that you mean the 6/18/65 gig at Frenchy's, the first with Phil. So it's 20th, unless you count the first gig as the first anniversary. A poster from the show:

Here's an interesting writeup. He didn't find evidence of the Warlocks on the bill from that week's Frenchy's ad in the local paper. Perhaps they were late replacements for the Lords of London, who were advertised as the band? Or were an opening act and put up the posters themselves, ignoring the main band?

Btw there's also a comment that links to another blog with some neat memories of early Jerry and the Warlocks.

(Theoretically, there could indeed by a 21st anniversary of BIODTL sometime in 1985, since Mother McCree's did that one!)

wow. I burned this show a few years ago and throw it in every once in a while. I'm a huge Comes A Time fan and did not know this was a breakout. Thanks for this
